Holm joins Celtic on five-year deal as Rodgers' first signing

Celtic have signed midfielder Odin Thiago Holm on a five-year deal, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old joins from Valerenga - in his native Norway - and becomes manager Brendan Rodgers' first signing since returning to the club.

He scored 13 goals for the Oslo-based team in 91 matches and will wear the No 15 jersey at Celtic next season.

Rodgers said: "We are delighted to bring Odin to the club and to secure his signing so early in the window.

"He is a player who has been in the club's scouting and recruitment system for some time.

"I have looked at him closely and believe he is someone who can make a big impact at the club.

"I have spent time already with Odin, he is an ambitious, exciting young player and I know he is delighted to be joining us.

"He is a great addition to the quality squad we already have and we really look forward to working with him."
